We are so excited to announce our 1 Mile Everyday Challenge!

 

Run, jog, or walk 1 mile every day from November 1st through the 30th.  This is going to be a great way to create a new habit and get moving.  If you've been trying to start a new workout routine or build new habits but have been too busy or don't know where to start, this is for you!

What is the point of the 1 Mile Everyday Challenge?

You know, New Year is coming up soon. A lot of us are going to want to start looking after our health. Why wait until January?  Start building your habits now.  A lot of people don't have access to the gym right now or feel like they don't have time to exercise. The beauty of this challenge is that just about anyone can complete a mile a day!  You can break it up into sessions if time is the issue.

 

Ways to get your mile in:

  1. Walk, jog, run outdoors
  2. Walk, jog, run on a treadmill
  3. Ride a bike
  4. Dance!
  5. Walk or march in place if you can't leave the house

Before you get moving:

  1. Make sure to SMR or foam roll.
  2. Stretch your legs, back, hips, arms, shoulders.

 

This challenge is for all fitness levels.  If you are a beginner start walking.  If you can't make the 1 mile in one day, do as much as you can without pushing yourself too hard.  Eventually, you will get to a point where you'll be able to walk 1 mile!  That's the whole point of this challenge- to reach new levels!

 

If this challenge is too easy and you could walk 1 mile in your sleep, try beating your personal record.  If you walk 1 mile in 25 minutes, try to finish the month by walking a mile in under 20 minutes for example.  Or you can try jogging 1 mile instead of walking it.

For back, hip, or other joint pain - take it easy.  You definitely do not want to skip the SMR and stretching.  If you can, add some core exercises to your daily routine. This is going to help strengthen your core muscles to protect your joints.

Parting thoughts:

  1. Don't push yourself too hard. You know your limits and you know how much to push.
  2. Compare yourself to yourself from yesterday - don't try to keep up with others in this challenge.
